to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what these programs can do, the scope of them, the magnitude, and how to bring about more transparency. what could be declassified? we've seen steps toward that already with some of the details of these programs no

with you. and no warrant is required. nsa official says: nsa signals intelligence activities? are designed to acquire, produce, and disseminate foreign intelligence information net capables and intentions or activities of foreign powers and their agents, foreign organizations, foreign persons, blah blah blah. and any immix indication that nsa's collection is arbitrary and unconstrained is dead wrong. >> how chose to white house justify this. >> the president's spy agencies are not just interested in communication to and from a terror target. they're interested in information about the target. so when that comes up in an e-mail send from an american to someone overseas it's fair game to symptom but it has to cross the border. it can't be an e-mail to someone else inside the country. "the new york times" says that nsa computers search nearly all cross-border text data for dewords and save e-mail or instant mess imagines so analysts can examine them. jay carny says anything not related to an investigation is deleted. >> the purpose of the program is to investigate and potentially prevent terr

were using you to either justify the nsa coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets and saying it was signals intelligence. >> sure. first to fran's point. it is true it is one of many threat streams and one piece of information in a broad mosaic of a collection that the u.s. intelligence community is engaged in on a regular basis but the meeting was significant according to officials and reports in the "new york times" mcclatchy and other outlets because it is where the vague discussion of impending attack was discussed. if you look at the embassy closings around this world it largely matches the people who were on the call according to to our reporting. you can understand why the u.s. government took a broad brush aproechl as for it being their motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. i would say some communications they hold closely. some they take risk on. this seems to be a risk they didn't take as far as other reporters linking it to the nsa and snowden and what have you. it is important to point out the programs disclosed by

, we do so. >> safe to say that we learned about these threats through the nsa program? >> we have some mechanisms where we can track a phone number or an e-mail address that we know is connected to some sort of terrorist threat. and, you know, that information is useful. but, what i've said before, i want to make sure i repeat. and that is, we should be skeptical about the potential encroachments on privacy. none of the revelations show that government has abused these powers, but they're pretty significant powers. and i've been talking to congress and civil libertarians and others about are there additional ways that we can make sure that the people know. no one is listening to your phone call. >> were you surprised that russia granted snowden asylum? >> i was disappointed. because, you know, even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or an alleged law braeaker in their country. we evaluate it and we try to work with them. they didn't do that with us and in some ways it's reflective of some underlying chal
